The Silestone Slab Vase provides a cold contrast to the bright blooms it holds. Made out of natural quartz, the stony surface is sleek, smooth and contemporary. It brings about the image of nature breaking through the concrete grounds of an urban jungle. Aside from its potentially poetic artistic value, the Silestone Slab Vase is simply a beautiful accent to have in the home.

Created by Stockholm-based studio Form Us With Love in collaboration with Spanish stone company Cosentino, the Silestone Slab Vase was recently showcased at the Swedish Museum of Architecture during Stockholm Design Week. According to the designers, "The project aims to break away from the familiar slab form and explore the material’s tactile dimension." It is made out of Silestone rings arranged on a metal stand.
